    Many sixth forms and colleges require a C or B in GCSE maths for you to attend. Check the website/prospectus of wherever you plan on staying

    Hey,

    Not meaning to be too negative (not good in life), it depends on the requirements of the individual 6th form... but most likely they will need maths.

    Sorry

    get in touch with sixth forms you're interested in, pretty sure some would allow you to go if you resat your maths (which you have to do anyway) but you'd be limited on courses

    Yes you do because if you've failed, you need to re-take maths and u need at least an C to do it.

    Good luck with the rest of your exams

    Not necessarily, i know people who had 5 A*-C grades in other subjects but maths and were still allowed to do A levels, however, that will depend on each sixthfrom/college.

    If you get C or B in English, you should be fine doing most subjects.

    You will also be required to resit maths as its compulsory to do so until you are 18.

    Many sixth forms will allow you to resit your maths GCSE akin studying your A Levels. I know of several who do locally to me. Do some research many will also let you study English language if you haven't passed and sometimes even science. Two people I know have been studying English language and Maths alongside normal A levels. So have a look ! Good luck .
